In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Amcor Rigid Packaging (ARP) is expanding its healthcare product portfolio to include general-purpose face masks. After piloting the assembly for employee use, ARP expanded production to support its customers.

 

ARP is assembling the general-purpose face masks at its Millville, N.J. facility. Securing its own supply of high-quality masks helps ensure Amcor colleagues continue to safely produce essential products without interruption.

Amcor Rigid Packaging is expanding its healthcare product portfolio to include general-purpose face masks.


The face masks meet general purpose-use requirements with a triple layer consisting of a non-woven inner and outer layer, and a melt-blown middle layer.

 

ARP has made a significant investment which includes the installation of an assembly line, infrastructure modifications, inventory of production materials, and related costs for design, quality, and packaging.

 

“Our teams quickly rallied, establishing the necessary skills, capability and expertise to assemble face masks,” according to Greg Rosati, Vice President of Healthcare for ARP’s Specialty Container business. “After first addressing the health and safety of our employees, we identified an opportunity to extend the offering to support our customers who have similar values and safety protocols in place.”
